Although, we used to associate cosmetic surgery with women’s desire to enhance their figure, the reality is that these procedures are not limited to one gender or one age group.
Much more men choose cosmetic procedures that enhance their figure by showing a more attractive body, and improve their self-esteem.
One of the most popular surgeries for men is liposculpture.
As we said before, liposculpture is different from liposuction because both have different objectives and also different patients are candidates for each one. Liposculpture is the procedure that defines and details the contour of certain areas of the body that exhibit fat that is difficult to eliminate with diet and exercise.
Which Are the Most Popular Areas in Men’s Bodies for Liposculpture?
In general, practically any body area that has accumulated fat that is difficult to eliminate is a liposculpture candidate; however, among men, the most popular areas that conform a liposculpture are:
Chest: Sometimes men breasts increase in volume exaggeratedly, and despite exercise, they can have an undesired volume. This area should be assessed by a medical provider to determine how much fat can be removed with liposculpture or if it is necessary to combine it with a gynecomastia treatment.
Abdomen: Another popular area is the abdomen, which is defined and carved out with this procedure. The surgery identifies abdominal muscles and removes excessive fat located in this area to help the patient define the abdomen with the assistance of diet and exercise.
Other areas where liposculpture can be undergone are: hips, thighs, arms, lower back, and face to eliminate double chins, for example.
What Happens during the Procedure?
It is a simple procedure in which very small cannulas connected to a vacuuming device are introduced through small incisions to remove fat.
The surgeon identifies the muscles that the patient wants to define and removes the fatty tissue surrounding them, achieving better definition.
How Can I Know If I Am a Candidate?
Candidates for this surgical procedure are men with a general good health, who despite diet and exercise, have fat accumulated in defined areas, and who want to eliminate it to better define their body’s contour.
How Long Is the Recovery Period?
Depending on the surgeon’s instructions, usually a week after the procedure you can resume your normal activities, and you will be able to exercise after 4 to 6 weeks.
If you have any questions, we recommend you contact a certified cosmetic surgeon, who will counsel you about the expectations and results of liposculpture, and how you can look more masculine.
